Every investment project affects the natural environment. Effective risk management in this area constitutes a key aspect of the functioning of industry sectors such as, mining, metallurgy, construction and energy. Accordingly, a proper assessment of environmental risks is, in many cases, decisive to the entire project’s success.
Environmental protection challenges have a global dimension so, aside from national law, a vital role in their implementation is also played by EU law and international conventions.
Environmental protection laws are frequently amended and their highly precise content requires a vast knowledge of how different sectors of the economy operate. The increasing amount of environmental law implies an increasingly wider scope of responsibilities for entrepreneurs. An investment’s compliance with environmental law represents a serious challenge which every entrepreneur faces nowadays. This is why the ongoing supervision of a project’s compliance with environmental law and the monitoring of any legislative amendments represent some of the many determinants for the proper operations of businesses including mines, factories or power plants.
Water and sewage management, waste management, gas and dust emissions or soil contamination are merely some of the issues to be kept in mind when preparing and implementing investment projects.
Our team includes experts who have cooperated for many years with clients and entrepreneurs, both domestic and foreign, from various sectors of the economy (e.g. mining, energy, metallurgy, manufacturing/food industries). As a result, we have considerable experience and vast knowledge of the specificities and operations of different markets, so we can offer clients cooperation and services which are fully tailored to their expectations and business needs.
